Time:6:30pm - 8:00pm
Location:Forsyth Hall
Categories:Adult
Registration:Registration is required for this event.
Description:

Session 1: Tuesday November 15

Uncover the Bias Within to Build a More Inclusive and Just Society 

When we allow demeaning comments, stereotypes, or bias to go unchallenged, we are effectively endorsing them. Silence in the face of bigotry only serves to perpetuate it. We must speak up and stand up for what is right if we want to see a change in the way people think and behave. This hampers our ability to foster an inclusive society where everyone is welcomed, respected and valued for their uniqueness. However, many of us who want to speak up don't know how. So we stay silent. Session Objectives: · Understand the impact of stereotypes and bias statements, even when casually said · Identify the most common reasons people sit silently in the face of bias and stereotypes · Develop skills for speaking up against stereotypes without blame or guilt

Session 2: Tuesday November 29

Complicit Or Cooperator: How to become an Ally when Everyone Is Looking Away

When we remain silent in the face of disrespect or unacceptable behavior, we are all harmed. In this workshop, we will encourage and empower bystanders to use their voices as active Allies and Accomplices when they witness others being treated with disrespect.

Session Objectives:

· Understand the high cost of silent collusion

· Explore the power of bystander to make a difference

· Develop skills needed to become an effective ally and accomplice

 

Registration includes both Tuesday November 15 and  Tuesday November 29
